Commemorated on October 18
The Monk Julian
asceticised in fasting and prayer in Mesopotamia (near the River Euphrates).
Once during the time
of prayer the monk heard a voice, announcing that the emperor Julian the
Apostate would soon perish. Soon the prophesy was fulfilled. Through the
efforts of the monk on Mount Sinai was erected a church in memory of the
Obtaining by the holy Prophet Moses of the Tablets of the Law.
